Construction has begun on Uplands Corporate Center Phase II, a 124,405 square foot office building that will be located on a 48-acre site at 5301 Southwest Parkway, Austin. This phase broke ground in December and is expected to open by the end of 2020, according to a news release by real estate groups CBRE and Drawbridge Realty.

The first phase of the Uplands Corporate Center, a 167,369-square-foot office building, is also now fully leased, according to the release. Tenants include “professional firms from the energy, financial services, legal and technology industries.”

At full build-out of the property, Uplands Corporate Center will include an expanded parking garage and outdoor amenities, including walking trails and a food truck area. The two phases will total over 290,000 square feet of office space once complete.

“The Southwest submarket of Austin is growing quickly and is seeing a lot of interest from companies relocating to and within Austin,” said Troy Holme, CBRE Austin executive vice president, in the release. “What we saw with the lease up at Uplands Corporate Center Phase I is that companies are very attracted to the Southwest Parkway’s convenient access to both downtown and the airport.”
